Andrea Gebbia grew up in Carrollwood, and now she is bringing the family business to the neighborhood of her youth.
In late fall, Joe and Son's Olive Oils is slated to open a second location.
"I feel so blessed having the ability to grow my family's business in the neighborhood where I grew up," Gebbia said. "My parents moved to original Carrollwood in 1975, which is only 1 1/2 miles from the new location."
Joe and Son's Olive Oils is a family-owned and operated specialty food store that began in 1938 when Gebbia's great-grandfather, Giuseppe (Joe) Favata, opened a neighborhood grocery store in historic Ybor City. Joe and his son, John, offered their customers the finest produce, meats, olive oils, and other staples, while focusing on providing excellent service to their customers.
Though the original shop closed in 1976, Gebbia reopened the business in 2011 in South Tampa.
Joe and Son's Olive Oils offers more than 50 varieties of ultra-premium, imported, extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars, including single varietal extra virgin olive oils, infused and fused olive oils, seed and nut oils, and infused aged balsamic vinegars. All of the oils and vinegars are offered for complimentary tasting, and all bottles are poured on site.
Specialty foods include jarred olives, sauces, jams, seasonings, and charcuterie. Cooking demonstrations and events are also held at the store.
Joe and Son's Olive Oils will be located at 11618 North Dale Mabry Highway, next to Noble Crust. For more information, visit joeandsonsoliveoils.com.
